About No Doubt in brief
No Doubt is an American rock band from Anaheim, California, formed in 1986. The band consists of vocalist Gwen Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young. Since the mid-1990s, they have been supported by trombonist Gabrial McNair and trumpeter Stephen Bradley in live performances. They have sold over 33 million records worldwide. No Doubt received the Key to the City of Anaheim, given by the Mayor of Anaheim during the band’s appearance on ‘Breakfast with Kevin and Bean’ where they performed five songs. In 2008, the band resumed working slowly on their sixth effort, titled Push and Shove, and released their single \”Settle Down\”. The group’s next album, Return of Saturn, did not match the success of their previous album, but received critical praise and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 43rd Grammy Awards. In July 1989, The US Navy Band signed the band to a multi-album deal with The newly-crowned Red Hot Chili Peppers. The group performed at an Orange High School backyard graduation party on June 6, 1987 with two other California ska bands. In December 1987, John Spence ended his life, several days before the band was to play a gig at The Roxy Theatre for record industry employees. In early 1988, Paul Caseley joined the band in 1987. The album Rock Steady was primarily recorded in Jamaica and featured collaborations with Jamaican artists Bounty Killer, Sly and Robbie, and Lady Saw.
The album produced two Grammy-winning singles, \”Hey Baby\” and \”Underneath It All\”. The band disbanded but decided to regroup after several weeks with Alan Meade taking over vocals. When Meade left the band, Gwen replaced him as lead singer, and NoDoubt continued to develop a live following in California. In April 2004, the group embarked on a tour with The Red Hot Chilli Peppers at Cal State Long Beach. The tour included shows with The Untouchables, Fishbone, and a show with the Red Hot Peppers in Long Beach, California. The U.S. Navy Band for the first time played a gig with the U.N. Band at The Whisky Grand Ballroom, Fender Ballroom in Los Angeles, California in July 2004. The show included a set that included the songs \”Total Hate\”, \”Too Much Pressure\”, \”Danger\”, \”Paulina\”,\”Gangsters\”, and the song \” no Doubt\”. It was the first U.K. band to play at the concert, and the band went on to play with The Rolling Stones, U2, The Police, and The Grateful Dead. In May 2005, No Doubts played a show at the Grand Canyon in California with the band members from both coasts. They also played a concert at the University of California, Los Angeles. In August 2005, the U2 band played a benefit concert for the California Institute of the Arts. The concert was held at the California Center for the Performing Arts, where the band also performed with the California Symphony.
